Re: Balboa 27 8.2

Lightweight, fast boat, designed by the Lyle Hess. Good for coastal cruising, e.g. Catalina Island to LA, or up and down San Diego and Santa Barbara. Would not take her offshore though. Good boat to hone your sailing skills on.

I had one with a swing keel but there are fixed keel versions, had a tabernacle mast. One of the bigger trailerable boats.

Here is a link to the Yahoo Group for its smaller sibling the Balboa 26, which is the same boat only a foot shorter
